Tutor / Kaiako – Educational Services Corrections

Casual Reliever to 18 December 2020

Location:  Rimutaka and Arohata Correctional Facilities

Reference 18THO136

He karanga tēnei ki te hunga e kai ngākau nui ana ki te kaupapa o Te Wānanga o Aotearoa.  Mā te hoe kotahi ka haere kotahi atu

Due to the current reliever moving to a full time role, we now invite applications from a passionate, professional and energetic individual for the Relief Kaiako / Tutor position.  Relievers are vital positions within our service as they enable continuity of delivery when the regular kaiako are absent due to sickness and other leave periods so we avoid cancellation of classes and disappointment for the learners.

About the role:

This role involves variety, will call on your expertise and may involve any of the following:

  • Delivering assessment with the Adult Literacy and Numeracy Assessment Tool (LNAAT) and interpreting results
  • Presenting material to tauira, responding to tauira learning needs, and evaluating tauira progress
  • Implementing Individual Learning Plans and facilitating learning sessions to increase tauira knowledge, skills and competence
  • Utilising teaching materials such as handouts and study materials as required to support learning
  • Maintaining records of tauira assessment results, attendance registers, progress and feedback
  • Ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements including those of the Department of Corrections

Reporting to the Team Lead, your expertise at establishing and maintaining strong relationships with Department of Corrections kaimahi, other tertiary providers delivering educational programmes in prisons, and relevant external groups within the region/s will be invaluable. 

What you need:

You will hold a Diploma in Adult Education or Teaching and be working towards, or have already completed, the National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (NCALNE) (Level 5) and NZQA unit standards 4098, 11281 and 18203.  A minimum of 2 years’ experience successfully delivering Literacy and Numeracy training to at risk or second chance learners is essential and delivering Literacy and Numeracy training in the prison context is a distinct advantage. 

As the successful candidate you will be required to pass a stringent Police check to enable access to Department of Corrections Facilities and complete the Department of Corrections on site induction in addition to the Te Wānanga o Aotearoa induction process. 

A full NZ Driver’s License (Class 1) is essential and a moderate level of fitness is required to enable access to classrooms on-site.
